STOUGHTON, MASS. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts say a man has been stabbed during a house party at a university chancellor’s home while he was out of town.

The stabbing happened early Sunday morning at the Stoughton home of University of Massachusetts Boston chancellor J. Keith Motley.

Police say the 20-year-old unidentified victim was taken to a hospital in Boston. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

Motley says in a statement that he was traveling and not home at the time of the incident. He says he’s “very concerned” about it as well as the health of the injured man.
